Safeguard your Data with Confidence

Eliminate application vulnerabilities and stop data breaches.


You depend on applications everyday. They are how your customers and partners connect with you, and they are how your employees get their jobs done. Unfortunately, your applications remain one of the most commonly exploited threat vectors. Barracuda WAF protects your web, mobile and API applications from being compromised, and prevents data breaches— ensuring you maintain your reputation and your customer’s confidence.




Ensure Protection from Web Attacks and DDoS

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall protects applications, APIs, and mobile app backends against a variety of attacks including the OWASP Top 10, zero-day threats, data leakage, and application-layer denial of service (DoS) attacks. By combining both positive signature-based policies with robust anomaly detection capabilities, Barracuda WAF can defeat today’s most sophisticated attacks targeting your web applications.

Barracuda Active DDoS Prevention—an add-on service for the Barracuda Web Application Firewall—filters out volumetric DDoS attacks before they ever reach your network and harm your apps. It also protects against sophisticated application DDoS attacks without the administrative and resource overhead of traditional solutions, to eliminate service outages while keeping costs manageable for organizations of all sizes.


Protect APIs and Mobile Apps

Mobile application and APIs are now everywhere and are used by every modern organization every day. API’s are the critical backbone for every connected service and ensuring and maintaining the security and availability of API’s are increasingly critical for businesses.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides comprehensive security and availability for API’s. It can secure both XML and JSON API’s against all types of attacks, including API farming and scraping. The Barracuda WAF also secures the XML and JSON parsers, all while providing complete, granular access control. The built-in rate control and application delivery features enable consistent and reliable API delivery within SLA’s to ensure seamless scalability, all while virtual patching provides an automated feedback loop for security.


Block Malicious Bots and Automated Attacks

More than half of internet traffic is generated by automated bots. A significant part of this automated traffic is malicious – either bots that scrape and steal your data for profit, or automated attacks to compromise your web applications. Protect your websites from content scraping, data theft, and non-human traffic that slows the overall availability of your web applications. The Barracuda WAFs built-in bot detection technologies can distinguish between bad bots from good bots through a verity of countermeasures. This ensures your applications are ready to perform optimally for your customers, clients, employees, and partners.


Secure App Delivery and Increase Availability

All applications today need to be delivered securely over HTTPS. However slow-loading and unsecure applications are not only frustrating for everyone but can expose sensitive information. The Barracuda Web Application Firewall helps you enable HTTPS quickly and easily, even for legacy applications, with Instant SSL capabilities. With a hardened SSL/TLS stack and performance acceleration capabilities, Barracuda WAF ensures fast, secure and reliable access to all your web-facing applications. Built-in layer 7 load balancing, caching and compression technologies cut latency and deliver consistent, reliable access for every user.
